irony supplement

During today's coverage of the game of seven-hundred-billion-card monty the Bush administration is trying to ram down the collective throat of the country just before the most consequential election of the last century, what should appear during a commercial break but an ad for the investment firm Barclays PLC?

A typical advertisement of its type, the commercial ended with a voiceover, which to paraphrase said something to the effect of "investing is risky and can lead to serious financial consequences, including loss of your investment."

Apparently that risk is only for the customers, not the institutions.
